    HP 35s Using random numbers for simulations Random numbers Random numbers have uses as varied as games and stock market simulations. On the HP 35s, generating random numbers involves providing a starting decimal seed to the calculator using the ¹...
  • Page 3 15 will occur). Store the initial seed and then generate the five random numbers. Evaluate each random number as it is generated. In RPN mode: ¹ In algebraic mode: ¹ hp calculators - 3 - HP 35s Using random numbers for simulations - Version 1.0...
  • Page 4 Solution: When a die is rolled, the result is equally likely to be a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. Since the HP 35s random numbers are decimal numbers, it will be necessary to transform them into integers between 1 and 6. Since the...
